*How to Easily Deploy Confidential Computing* 
*July 28, 2021*
Steve Van Lare, Anjuna; Anand Kashyap, Fortanix; Michael Hoard, Intel

To counter the ever-increasing likelihood of catastrophic disruption and 
cost due to enterprise IT security threats, data center decision makers 
need to be vigilant in protecting their organization’s data. 
Confidential Computing is architected to provide security for data in 
use to meet this critical need for enterprises today.

This webcast provides insight into how data center, cloud and edge 
applications may easily benefit from cost-effective, real-world 
Confidential Computing solutions. This educational discussion will 
provide end-user examples, tips on how to assess systems before and 
after deployment, as well as key steps to complete along the journey to 
mitigate threat exposure. Learn:

  * What would it take to build-your-own Confidential Computing solution?
  * Emergence of easily deployable, cost-effective Confidential
    Computing solutions
  * Real world usage examples and key technical, business and investment

*Extending Storage to the Edge - How It Should Affect Your Storage 
*August 25, 2021*
Erin Farr, IBM; Vincent Hsu, IBM; Jim Fister, The Decision Place

Data gravity has pulled computing to the Edge and enabled significant 
advances in hybrid cloud deployments. The ability to run analytics from 
the datacenter to the Edge, where the data is created and lives, also 
creates new use cases for nearly every industry and company. However, 
this movement of compute to the Edge is not the only pattern to have 
emerged. How might these other use cases impact your storage strategy?

This webcast will focus on the following topics:

  * Emerging patterns of data movement and the use cases that drive them
  * Cloud Bursting
  * Federated Learning across the Edge and Hybrid Cloud
  * Considerations for distributed cloud storage architectures to match
    these emerging patterns
